UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a wonderful week in Sonia's Villa Andrea. It's in a beautiful area of Tuscany only a short way from Lucca with other places such as Pisa, Florence, San Gimignano and Volterra as well as the villages of the Chianti region all within an hour or so's drive. Whilst the villa is in a quiet, unspoilt rural area, access to major roads is quick and easy which all adds to the ease with which you can explore this part of Tuscany. The villa is spacious and intimate. It is well equipped and has a real sense of character about it. It lies in lovely grounds with pool garden immediately adjacent to it. The outlook is across meadows and olive groves which we loved. We particularly enjoyed watching hoopoes feeding on the grass and redstarts nest building in the trees! It’s lovely to have a car to have daily trips (or at least to drive to the Lucca train station in 10 mins) while St Andrea and the close by Pieve, the villages in which the villa lies, are a lovely villages with several facilities and the nearest shops/supermarkets and restaurants if you want to eat out are within 5 mins driving. There is a bus at the top of the road for Lucca, but once again a car is far more convenient. In summary, the description you read of the property is accurate. It is clean and has the real sense of an antique villa, Sonia and Christina were extremely welcoming and helpful and we would certainly recommend the property to friends and family. It would be very hard to find anything negative to say about it. We certainly anticipate returning at some time ourselves to continue our exploration and appreciation of this fascinating part of Tuscany. Thanks Sonia for your impressive customer care. You have been wonderful.

Clean, comfortable, amazing town & friendly family

Clean, comfortable, amazing town & friendly family

I rented this villa, along with another one, for me and my family to stay at during my wedding in Lucca. Sonia and her family were very friendly. Sonia and I emailed back and forth several times about our arrival and she was always very responsive.
When we arrived she had the rental set up the way I asked, even making some special arrangements. The villa was clean and the rooms were all very comfortable. There is international television set up in a spacious TV room on the ground floor, which after traveling so long was a blessing to have channels our own your language.

The villas were set up so we could make food, brew coffee and do laundry, all of which went to great use. It's located close to a bus stop for the local bus. The local bus drives in a circle around town, so you can get most places with ease. Our other villa was in 5 mins drive.

Both the villas have a wonderful terrace with table and chairs. Our families spent many nights out on these drinking, laughing and admiring the view.

I would definitely recommend this villa to my friends and family. For the price and the amount of people you are able to fit, along with the friendliness of Sonia and her family you can't go wrong.

By the way, Sonia’s aunt saw my brother and two sisters on the side of the road arriving with all their luggage and lost because their phones weren't working. She asked where they were going and when they said Villa Andrea. She put all them in her car and drove them right there. Also, Sonia’s friend is the vice Mayor and married me and my husband.

VILLA ANDREA

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I spotted the advert and Villa Andrea looked delightful. We made enquiries and Sonia replied quickly with exactly the details we needed. As our travelling arrangements were a bit complicated she was very helpful, always giving us contact numbers and making everything run smoothly. When we arrived the property was even more attractive than we expected, and both Sonia and Cristina knew just how much to chat with us and give us space and privacy. It was fascinating to discover about the wine and Olive Oil that they produce, and it is well worth trying (shame we did not have room to take much more home!). Very helpful, friendly and efficient. A pleasure to be their guests.

a paradise on the hills of Lucca

  • 5 out of 5
The best holiday ever!! We absolutely loved everythihg about Villa Andrea. A good time was had by all. Sonia recommendation of the Villa for our 3 families- 6 adults and 6 teenagers worked out beautifully. Sonia was very helpful and always available to answer any questions every step of the way. Cristina both talented chef and caretaker, was very welcoming and helpful with suggestions of things to do. The Villa was set among the beautiful gardens, olive trees and oak trees. There was plenty of space for all to separate, roam, relax and have quiet time. At the same time it was wonderful for us all to gather in the spectacular old kitchen to cook and then share the meal on the lovely grand terrace in the garden.. We felt like living in the past with the old potteries and cutleries, the antique chairs and furniture, a very shabby atmosphere! We thoroughly enjoyed swimming in the private round pool and walking up to the village for gelato. The add on activities were amazing which included Pisa, Cinque Terra, and a Truffle tour. The highlights were the Personal Chef Dinner and the Cooking Class that Sonia arrange for us. Chef Cristina is awesome cook! We loved the short drive to the charming city of Lucca and spending time shopping and strolling along the narrow streets. Villa Andrea is truly a beautiful and peaceful place among the hills. Thank you Sonia for everything. We will treasure the memories forever! Dreaming of our next trip back to the countryside.

memorable

  • 5 out of 5
We just returned from a delightful stay at Villa Andrea in October 2012. The villa is large and comfortably furnished - accommodating two families very easily. As proof of our enjoyment, we would happily have extended our stay if the villa had not already been booked for the following week. The bathrooms are well fitted with good water pressure and plenty of hot water. The kitchen had all the equipment needed and we were made to feel very welcome. Sonia & Cristina were extremely helpful, informative and professional and we appreciated the excellent service they provided. The pool was immaculate and enjoyed by all. A wonderful and memorable holiday, thank you.

GREAT FOR DAILY TRIPS. GREAT OUTDOORS AND TERRACE

  • 5 out of 5
We returned from the villa 2 days ago and had a great time. Sonia was very helpful as was her son. The villa was spotless and had everything you could possibly need as well as a nice welcome pack which was very helpful as we arrived late on a Saturday night! We had plenty of space for the 10 adults and 2 children and the complex was very safe for the kids as it was all gated and secure. The villa is situated in a very central location and is in walking distance to everything you need and there is a large supermarket not far from the villa. the TV was great as the kids could watch english programs and there were lots of antique and new books to choose from. The pool was clean and in a charming setting, also not deep which is great for kids - the travel cot and highchair were also a god send!! We had great barbeques aImost every night and we always had dinner on the beautiful terrace facing the pool and the hills all around. The villa itself and the setting and the garden are IMPRESSIVE, so beautiful. I really enjoyed and would love to go again. Thanks Sonia for all your help :)
